In vino veritas means “in wine there is truth”, so we must be honest that this live auction item is OUTSTANDING. Be the highest bidder – or win the auction of your choice with the winning Golden Ticket – to win 101 bottles of wine! And we’re not talking Two-Buck Chuck here, these come from some of the best wineries in our region. Fancy a good red wine with your chateaubriand? Just pull one from your instant wine cellar. Pair that decadent shrimp fettuccine with a fine Chardonnay or bring a few bottles of bubbly to celebrate at your niece’s college graduation party. California winemakers are known across the world for their artful touch with blends and dessert wines, so naturally your new wine cellar will include some of those too. So, raise a glass, make a toast and most importantly, BID, BID, BID! This Classics, Cats & Cabernet live auction item is valued at $2,000.00. ***And remember, the holder of the winning Golden Ticket gets to pick their favorite live auction item, so get your ticket before they sell out.

There’s a super-exciting special guest coming to CC&C this year: Captain America! He’ll be riding in on his World War II motorcycle alongside Wakanda’s king Black Panther, Agent Peggy Carter, and fellow Avenger Black Widow. For only $5 (paid either in cash or with your bid number), you can get your photo taken with the trio. Get your tickets now so you don’t miss out on this uniquely memorable experience. Excelsior!

If you talk the talk, you’d better walk the hawk! Bid your way to the top at the CC&C live auction to win an amazing 4-hour Raptor Experience at West Coast Falconry in Marysville. Did you know that falcons can fly at more than 200 miles per hour? You’ll find out firsthand when you get to interact with these powerful birds of prey. First, the auction winner and 5 guests – birds of a feather, no doubt – will flock together first to enjoy a gourmet lunch. After the hands-on experience with falcons, you and your guests will go on a Hawk Walk through the forest, with a trained hawk swooping 20 feet from the sky and landing right on your glove. Wow! The Raptor Experience, a $2,300 value, is a rare and exhilarating opportunity that you can’t afford to miss. Your participation in the live auction (hawk-tion?) will help plenty of felines at FieldHaven, putting you smack dab in the cat-bird seat!!!

Summer is just around the corner, and what sounds better on a hot day than a nice, cool, sweet ice cream sundae? How about an ice cream sundae whose proceeds all go straight towards helping save cats’ lives? That’s just what happens at FieldHaven’s Classics, Cats & Cabernet every year at the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Sundae stand. A soft, creamy, generous scoop of vanilla ice cream is served up and decorated however you want: gooey caramel, chocolate sauce, sprinkles, chopped peanuts, a maraschino cherry, and/or whipped cream are all available. On top of all that, this delectable dessert comes free with admission.

Our Cat on a Hot Tin Roof sundaes have been generously donated by Lew & Debra Dobbins!

Be sure to stop by this cannot-miss stand at the 10th-annual Classics, Cats & Cabernet on Saturday, June 9th!

Get your tickets early – you don’t want to miss the delectable California cuisine presented by the multiple-award-winning Aubergine Catering! Its hard to choose which dish will be your favorite, maybe the fresh Spring salad with cranberries, feta, pecans and raspberry vinaigrette? Crisp, tangy and slightly sweet all at the same time, that could be the best. But the roasted potatoes and herb-butter green beans will go so perfectly with the succulent pork tenderloin with ginger-apricot sauce! Then again, the crème de la crème may be the delicious chicken served with a Madeira cream sauce. Oh, and don’t forget the pasta with fresh grilled vegetables; Aubergine really does a wonderful job with that. Can’t decide which one is the best? Here’s the good news – you don’t have to choose! All of these tempting dishes will be served for your pleasure at Classics, Cats & Cabernet!

Classics, Cats & Cabernet is full of delicious treats and beverages. Which one are you?

Mostly A’s – You’re beer! You’re laid-back, casual, and willing to go with the flow. You don’t desire the spotlight, but you love to be around others and have fun. People feel comfortable around you and often open up to you.

Mostly B’s – You’re a sangria cone! Lively and full of infectious energy, you’re a sangria cone! Your vivacious tenacity to make others happy is not always as appreciated as it should be, but those who know you best fully value your colorful, sweet, and cheery demeanor.

Mostly C’s – You’re wine! A classic, you are elegant, reserved, and graceful. Your gentility appeals to others, and you tend to make and keep long-lasting and loyal friendships. You have something of a romantic side to you as well.

Mostly D’s – You’re the dessert bars! As a dessert bar, you do great with other people, but have no problem shining all on your own; in fact, that’s where you’re at your best! Off-beat and creative, your unique perspectives on the world intrigue others and often lead to stimulating conversations.

Mostly E’s – You’re lemonade! Dependable, fun, and spunky, you’re a great person to hang out with. You’re kind and considerate, but can be a bit off-putting at times to those who aren’t accustomed to your personality and sense of humor. That just makes the friends in your life all the more special: they know who you are and love you for it!

Mostly F’s – You’re the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof sundaes! Everyone is drawn to your sweet nature; you’re lighthearted, cool, and funny. You tend to favor working with others, even though you can do just fine on your own when needed.

Mostly G’s – You’re the catered dinner! You love drawing people together to socialize and reminisce, making you a wonderful host/ess. Having people around you is where you feel most at home, and you know how to get people talking. 

Mostly H’s – You’re the popcorn! It might take you a little while to warm up to people, but once you’re ready, you’re the life of the party! Your chipper and joyful energy is hard to resist. While you might get stressed out under pressure, you still know how to kick back and have a good time.
